COSE Networking Wednesday

Where did I go last week? Wednesday was the YWCA of Greater Cleveland Career Connection. I attend one job club to aid me in my job search.

I received the first “thumbs down” on a listed event during this meeting. It was the Cleveland Small Business Meetup Group, one of several I recently located on Meetup.com. Usually, I get favorable comments about an event or love I compile the list.

I’m glad this person did inform me an event did not work out. And we need more of this!  Comment on your experiences at listed events.

On Thursday, I went to the NEOSTC Networking Lunch in Mayfield Heights. It was not the usual people I see at this lunch. Attendees were from nearby technology companies, such as Rockwell Automation. Including myself, there were 10.

    I just received word from a contact, Julie D., that she mentioned the list in her latest article. It’s about networking and worth a read. Go to: http://bit.ly/9zSH2Y

    Thanks Julie!
